The Rangers did a good job trading for Chad Johnson. 5th round pick acquired for Ryan Hollweg from Toronto which Pittsburgh sent to Toronto for Hal Gill. Pittsburgh wasn't signing Johnson so they were going to lose him as a free agent so they re-acquired their pick for Johnson. The Rangers could have waited until August 15 to sign Johnson but they would have competed against other teams for his services. Johnson could have waited until August 15 to sign a NHL contract as a free agent but he decided to sign with the Rangers.

Still would like to see the Rangers sign Johan Hedberg as their back-up to Henrik next season. Hedberg's favorite team growing up was the Rangers. 1 year contract for Hedberg. Leave Ocho Cinco in HFD next season.
